Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio Alle Mura 2007
"A striking wine, the 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio alle Mura covers every inch of the palate. In 2007, the Riserva is pure texture, silk and voluptuousness. Freshly cut roses, sweet red berries, tobacco and mint all take shape in this impeccable, sensual wine. Ripe tannins support the gracious, generous finish. Simply put, the 2007 Riserva Poggio alle Mura is one of the very finest wines I have ever tasted from Banfi, and hopefully a harbinger for the future...93" WA 06/13
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Aromas of ripe plums and berries and hints of tar. Full body with velvety tannins and a lovely texture. Fruit and coffee character on the palate. Structured. Classy and powerful. Needs two or three years to soften. Better than 2006. James Suckling.
Dunkles, sattes Rubinrot. Grandioses Fruchtbouquet mit feinem Rosenparfüm und nobler Lebkuchenwürze, auch Rotweinbirnen, reife Kirschen und Milchschokolade. Im Gaumen sanft und geschmeidig, mit runden Tanninen und zartcremigem Schmelz, lang anhaltendes, komplexes Finale.
Aged for a total of up to four years, including a minimum of two years in oak barrels, Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino is a wine of robust character. It possesses a rich garnet color, and a depth, complexity and opulence that is softened by an elegant, lingering aftertaste.

Fabulous aromas of plums, blackberries and flowers follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and juicy fruit. This is structured and very rich. Needs another two or three years to soften. One of the best wines ever from Banfi. James Suckling. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino Alle Mura Riserva 750ml
Wonderful nose of dried flowers, orange peel, dark fruits and tanned leather. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a subtle fruity finish. Long and racy. Almost at the level of the great 2006. James Suckling. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino 750ml
Opens with a garnet-ruby color with hues of amber on the rim. Oak tones of spice and toasted nut still need time to integrate. The wine is bright tonic and slightly astringent with a firm polished disposition. Nice fruit tones of currant and cassis. Give it a few more years in the cellar. Wine Enthusiast.
